Southern California bar honors Gulf Coast icon Flora-Bama

March 18, 2019

March 18, 2019 – Orange Beach, AL (OBA®) – When Ty Hauter has bands flown in from Nashville and Texas to his Moonshine Beach music venue in San Diego, the up-and-coming artists flock to the club’s Flora-Bama wall to take pictures.

“So, when bands come into town they always get their picture taken by it just like the owner did,” Hauter said. “It’s become this special wall that everybody gravitates to for selfies and what not before they take off out of town.

“They’re always asking ‘what made you think of this?’”

Flora-Bama Mixes Iconic Bar with God | Bill On The Road

February 23, 2019
After escaping the frigid temperatures of the midwest, I thought it might be a good idea to thank God for warm weather.  So off to church I went. In the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area, you can praise the Lord in a bar with a rock band, as waves crash and sand blows a few yards to your back. The historic Flora-Bama (which is technically in Perdido Key, Florida) offers Sunday morning church services that are wildly popular, with a little more praise, and a little less party than usual.
